The estateandrsquo;s 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft, supple effort. Silky tannins frame a graceful core of perfumed ripe fruit. This medium-bodied Brunello reveals terrific length and focus in a mid-weight, polished style. The wine is likely to acquire more complexity in bottle but its balance makes it one of the more accessible 2004 Brunellos. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2016.

Medium full body. Medium acid. Lots of fruit. Medium oak. Lots of tannin. Red fruits, tar, leather, cola. Tart, somewhat candied fruit dominates wood and spice. Complex, lingering.

Die Aromen des Brunello Altero sind dominiert von der Fruchtigkeit schwarzer Beeren mit würzigem Unterton. Nicht Barriques werden verwendet, sondern Tonneaux, aus edelstem französischem Eichenholz. Die feinen vanilligen Noten bleiben deshab kaum wahrnehmbar, diskret im Hintergrund. Altero ist damit eine moderne Alternative zum klassischen Brunello

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a marvelous wine graced with expressive violets, black cherries, minerals, spices and subtle French oak. There is gorgeous clarity to be found in the glass, along with a beautiful balance of density and stru... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This winery seems to have the magic touch when it comes to obtaining graceful complexity balanced with rich, ripe fruit in their wines. The anise, tar and tobacco aromas mingle with smoke and an elegant, reserved Damson plum/black cherry core. So well-crafted you could enjoy this now - but what a promising future!

Good deep red. Pretty aromas of currant, coffee, graphite, smoke and tobacco. Plump, silky and suave, with a restrained sweetness and lovely inner-mouth aromatic character to the spicy flavors. This broad, round wine benefits from harmonious framing acidity. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Very expressive, ripe sangiovese.
